Thrustmaster announced the launch of a new space simulation control system in the form of the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo Joysticks, which as the name suggests provides two joysticks for multi-hand control and extra precision.
The included Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor software application has been designed to enable gamers to combine the joysticks with other Thrustmaster steaming gear for complete immersion.
The Space Sim Duo Joysticks are fully ambidextrous and can be configured as a left-handed or right-handed device, thanks to three detachable components. Thrustmaster explains more about the Space Sim Duo Joysticks features :
Each joystick in the T.16000M FCS Sim Space Duo pack benefits from the extreme precision of Thrustmaster’s H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology, which uses 3D magnetic sensors (Hall Effect) located in the stick to deliver precision levels 256 times greater than current systems, with a resolution reaching 16,000 x 16,000 values. As actions are frictionless, the joystick’s precision remains unaltered in time.
Each joystick provides pilots with firm, linear and smooth tension, thanks to the helical spring (0.1″/2.8 mm in diameter) located inside the stick. Combining two joysticks offers no less than 32 action buttons (with Braille-style physical identifiers) and 2 multidirectional hats, providing users with a significant range of feature allocation choices. Each joystick features 4 independent axes, rotary rudders located on the stick that can be allocated to horizontal or vertical strafing manoeuvers and two triggers, offering a full-fledged arsenal of possibilities.
The T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo joystick controllers are now available to purchase priced at $115 directly from the official Thrustmaster website and authorised retailers.
